Advice

If your husband has had a stress-filled week and you want to give him a really memorable birthday gift, try thinking outside the box. Look for a present designed to make him feel cool, masculine and special.


One suggestion: Do some fancy ice-driving stunts he can enjoy from the reflection of his own rear-view mirror. Then, wipeout and crack the right front wheel off the driveshaft. He will feel oh-so-cool as he stands in the snow waiting for the tow truck. He will feel masculine using words like axel and control-arm with the mechanic. And he will feel very special as he gets a one-of-a-kind birthday ride home with an obliging police officer. Total cost: $4500.

Happy Birthday, Babe!

Few people are as giving and generous as you. You always put others needs ahead of your own - you are incredible.

Bridget said...

Ouch. Ouch! Ouch!! So, sorry. Way to put a positive spin on it.

Wow! You really put everything you had into that present! If you're going to give something, do it big, do it right, do it expensive.

You are so thoughtful--I love your types of gifts. I also gave my husband a birthday present of a flat tire this week. It wasn't as good as yours but it'll do. He seemed thrilled.

I am so glad you weren't hurt, Gabi! Hopefully you'll get to drive something awesome while your van is being fixed! And Happy Birthday to Brad! Man, this week has been a great way to start a mid-life crisis! Love you guys.

You can place this birthday week on the same shelf as the "return from vacation to a broken fridge" volume, or maybe the "power's out for a week in 102 degrees" or the "one of my twin babies broke his leg and is in a body cast" episode. (Do you make these things up?)

How thoughtful of you! ;)

Lauren in GA said...

Ohhhhhhhhh, nooooooooo Gabi! I am glad you weren't hurt! It must have scared him to death watching you wreck behind him.

You are so thoughful...now that really is the gift that keeps on giving.

Should I wish him Happy Birthday, now? Of course, I should...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BRAD!! WE LOVE YOU!! And we LOVE you, too GABI!!

I agree with Oma - I think you've already had more than your share of things. It's got to be somebody else's turn (I just don't want it to be mine!)

Oh, man-- when it rains it pours! So sorry this happened to you. You must be getting prepped for something wonderful!

This could also be added to the episode where your son gets Lime disease. (Do you like how we are reminding you of all your past traumas?!?!?!? real nice.)

But, you always have the greatest attitude. I'm so glad that you are okay. Keep your chin up!

Marci said...

Dang! That really stinks! I am so sorry that happened, but grateful it wasn't worse. Here's to a better birthday for Brad next year!

Ilene said...

And you forgot to mention the part where he can use cuss words to his heart's content.

Rochelleht said...

OUCH!!

When it rains it pours.

Melissa-Mc said...

Why does everything happen all at once? So sorry.

Amanda D said...

Oh that's awful! So sorry it happened.

calibosmom said...

bummer! I'm a 01/11 baby too! Happy Birthday to your man!
